Nagarjuna. A 5th century Buddhist philosopher who literally refuted every philosophy.
> A 5th century Buddhist philosopher
>Nāgārjuna (c. 150 – c. 250 CE) was an Indian Mahāyāna Buddhist thinker, scholar-saint and philosopher. He is widely considered one of the most important Buddhist philosophers. Jan Westerhoff considers him to be "one of the greatest thinkers in the history of Asian philosophy."
Op couldnt even get the century right, he can't be that good then
His date of birth is disputed.
Ambedkar won brahcuck
Ambedkar was right about Islam. What he got wrong was his tendency to paint caste politics across India under a single uniform brush. Sure, you had places like Travancore in the south and Rajput kangdoms in the northwest which were caste-obsessed nutcases (especially Travancore). But then, you also had places like Bengal and the future Tamil Nadu where caste wasn't as autistic as he made it out to be. E.G. in Tamil Nadu, the Brahmins were mostly dirt poor village priests outside a few isolated urbanized peoples. Today, the vast majority of violence against Scheduled Castes (i.e. Dalits) in India is perpetrated by Other Backward Castes (i.e. Shudras, Vaishyas, and lower-importance Kshatriyas), not General Castes (Brahmins and higher importance Kshatriyas). In fact, Brahmins are some of the most Westernized people in India outside of religion.
Buddha btfo of brahmins
Bhim did too
Every single day scores of Brahmin are required to salute that Chakra of Buddha's Dharma.
Do you got any writings of his you want to recommend? Always open to new perspectives
is that Buddha? because he isn't unknown and at all nor ignored.
There's your answer. Some second century street shitter discovers the secret of designation and the west is supposed to care? Come back when you've learned how to not kill off all your women, turning an entire generation of brown skinned savages into unwashed homosexuals.
Don't worry, people know about him - it's just that Shankaracharya and Ramanujacharya BTFO'd HIS dumb philosophy.
Of course, even the weakest of dharmic philosophies still stand infinitely above the *brahamics.
Hinduism and Mahayana Buddhism can coexist.
He denies Atman AND Brahman. Interdependence = Brahman is an extreme stretch
Seethe chuddist, the varna system was never actually applied in society and law until the British Raj, even then it's meant to be an interdependent description of societal organization. Obviously you can't survive without your feet chopped off and bleeding out same way you can't survive without your head. Chopping off your thighs (killing merchants) also makes your feet (the artisans who trade through those merchants) useless.
The Jati system was initially a medieval guild system (hence why it's infinitely more complex than the varna system and organization tracks with historical kingdom boundaries). It was never meant to be RESTRICTED to birth, but Islamic invasion deurbanized Indian society and made it more conservative - resulting in the crystallization of jati into strict birth-based lots in life.
He doesn't. Consciousness is atman. Theravada Buddhism doesn't deny consciousness nor super-consciousness which is the same in essence.
Theravada is mostly right, but it posits that gods can die. They can't - they are emanations of the Supreme, and thus are unable to die except when the universe inevitably collapses at the end of Brahma's Day and the new one is made. You can literally pray to prior manifestations of the same overall God (i.e. Vishnu) who had a different name in the previous kalpa.
E.G. in this kalpa, we are on the 7th Manu (Vaisvata Manu, the current progenitor of this version of humanity). The first Manu, Svayambhuva Manu, was directed by a different Vishnu avatar named Yajna
My ex girlfriend was a Shudra caste, I'm a Brahmin (I'm also darker than her lol). Seethe and cope - America is the greatest country on earth and the Republic will stand for a thousand years.
Impossible, all dharmas are marked by anitya. Simple as.
That's the thing you see, gods are special - they are above humans. It is through their grace and intercession that we can get closer to the ultimate truth behind everything. If they die, that would mean they are just like us - flawed beings.
Buddha was not anti-Brahmin. He was anti-discrimination - but distinctly within a Hindu context. Buddhism as a separate ideology was born of men corrupting his words.
Buddha > Devas
It is through his Dharma, that we may attain the remainder less extinguishing.
He was anti brahminism

You mean this?
Looks interesting enough, Ill put it on my list. Thanks for broadening horizons
Yeah, Brahminism isn't Hinduism - in fact, it isn't even real. What the Buddha railed against was manmade elitism in religion, brought about by basedvilization
The Devas are the ones who intercede to bring us closer to God. Through yoga (e.g. tapas) and jnana we get closer and closer to the divine
Hinduism is inherently racist and classist.
Hindu superstitions. Buddhism doesn't require intercession. One's liberation is contingent on one's own efforts.
Caste != Class
Richest people in India are Vaishyas to this day. They're 3rd on the typical pyramidal ranking of varna (not that I agree with a hierarchical description in the first place).
Without the grace of God obtained through their own endeavors, humans have no chance of achieving moksha in this lifetime
Dalits are marginalised aboriginals
>caste is about money!
Brahmins have had iron grip over indian society. Indian religious law disproportionately favours them
>grace of God
Buddhism teaches people to attain their own liberation without depending on anyone else
>all this textual cope but won't hug a dalit push comes to shove
Vedantins are massive copers
No he doesnt. His very first verse refutes all philosophy.
Hinduism is wrong and evil for making the caste system
Nagarjuna takes too much time to tell you what he wants. He was probably a Buddha but it isn't the Buddhism that makes you interesting.
Nagarjuna was a brainlet brahmin who couldn't even understand dependent origination so he made up interdependence instead as a huge cope, and all the bugmen believed him lol
All enlightenments are the same essentially. Just described differently. Trust me because i achieved it. (keep seething haters this time it's real)
Someone who has achieved enlightenment wouldn't use the terms seethe or hater.
You can't imagine what it feels like until you achieved it. Supreme bliss known only to those that are chosen by the lord of hosts.
The best Buddhist text is the Platform Sutra in my view.
Im not well versed in mahayana stuff. Im a theravadan. But ive got to say Naga expressed the foundational teachings with excellent clarity.
